My Today - Review

My Today
My Way Series, Book Two
By: HJ Bellus


Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping
it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the
nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin. Not the
shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay.
If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually
did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you
do, you get burned.

That philosophy served its purpose,
until I met someone who turned my life upside down. Milly, the little hoochie,
stormed into my life and changed everything with her undying faith in me, her
love and her shitty coffee concoctions. I found a family in Milly, and her sexy
farm boy, Cree. She accepted me without hesitation, and never ran from the dark
and dangerous secrets that I harbored. My new family loved me unconditionally,
with their showers of sprinkles and impromptu dance parties. 

My life was perfectly imperfect until
Tripp and his crazy-ass ideas of princesses. Our relationship is what most
would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each
other to the ground. Tripp, fresh out of rehab, moved in with Milly and Cree to
try and make a new life for himself. Tripp, the sexy as hell, charismatic
beast, soon became one of my best friends. We shared our love of ice cream and
tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train
wreck. The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our
hot tempers and foul mouths, or will we paint our own happy ending filled with
all the gushy shit normal people crave?

“How weird of a couple we are.  I’m short and plump, you are a tall, sexy
Beast.  We are both way beyond repair.”

Of course you would…you are a typical horn dog.”

“Lacey, I really like you.  There is something about you that makes me
want to have you all to myself.”

Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are
five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!

Hey Hoochies! I'm Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to
the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have
left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its! 

I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I
ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket
list, a '66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that changed my
life forever. Follow me on my journey that resurrected my inner badass.

I found my soul sista from another mista, and opened my
dream shop along the way. Just when I gave up on finding true love, a pirate
and a princess swept me off my ever lovin' feet and filled my world with
sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again. They forced my fragile
heart to trust and love without fear. 

Truth is, nobody’s past stays hidden forever. It’s an
invisible monster waiting to attack and destroy. It has the capability to ruin
everything you’ve worked to set right. All it takes is one final blow to the
gut to end everything.

Stars:4 -4.5
This story is about Lacey aka Princess and Tripp aka Beast. They are two totally broken souls that seek out avenues to hide from their past. Lacey relies on sex while Tripp relies on drugs and sex. Bringing these two individuals together can be explosive for the world or life changing for them.
"We are both broken people and not quite sure on how to approach a relationship. I am going to take it as it is. As long as he lets me stay in his arms, I will keep riding the ride."
I really loved this story and the interactions between Lacey and Tripp but also between Lacey and her friends. They were open and honest and brought humor into everyday conversations. They were able to talk about serious stuff but would always find a way to bring it back around to a joke to lighten the air.
*Possible spoiler alert*
This story talks about some serious and raw/dark subjects and I think that HJ Bellus did a phenomenal job talking about those in this story. It's never easy to about rape, abuse, drug use, and inflicting physical harm on yourself. If you let these things take over who you are and control you then you will lose what matter most in life. But, if you find the power to take control of your life and seek help when needed then you will learn to cope.
Tripp and Lacey have a once and a lifetime love. They are meant for each other but the biggest question you will ask yourself while reading is whether they will destroy themselves and never get that chance at their happily ever after. There are so many secrets that will eventually come out that will leave you blown away.
